Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — A congressional candidate in the District of Columbia has become one of the rare candidates to show graphic abortion pictures in television commercials for her campaign.
Missy Smith, candidate for Congress against Eleanor Holmes Norton, has created two pro-life campaign ads. The ads contain graphic images of healthy unborn babies and babies killed by abortion.
The ads present a unique opportunity to show the graphic images of babies killed by abortion on national media. In opposition to the usual media "blackout" regarding the babies, the laws regulating campaign ads allow for the candidate to show the graphic images.
Smith is running for Congress in Washington DC with the express purpose of running the political ads on TV of graphic pictures of healthy unborn babies and dead babies killed by abortion, she said.
"As Father Frank Pavone has said, ‘America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion,’" she told LifeNews.com. "The two ads I have made for my campaign are jolting! Watch them and tell me what you think."
"We know these ads will save babies and get the dialogue started that is so needed. No one can see these ads and not realize that abortion is murder,’ she added.
The ads will run in the DC metro area until the day of the election. Except for a few small campaign expenses, every penny raised in her campaign will go toward the ads, she said.
"God bless this chance we have to show the truth in our nation’s capital where Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and Norton all support and promote legalized child killing," she said.
